Chapter 239: Re: Sentinel & Guide
Yonis stood outside the emergency room, desperately trying to suppress his spiritual power which was on the verge of surging as he was tormented by the waiting. The corridor of the hospital was very quiet, the oppressive atmosphere made others do not even dare to take large breaths.
Time passed by minute by minute, as if there was no end to it. Yonis hoped that the time would pass quickly, but was also fearful of hearing the unbearable news. After an unknown period of time, the door of the emergency room was opened. However, what he saw was the regretful look on the doctor’s face.
“I’m sorry, we did everything we could.”
Everything you could? What do you mean by “everything you could”? If you had really tried your best, shouldn’t my Keke have been saved?
The doctor still wanted to say something, but Yonis had already pushed him away and rushed into the emergency room. Seeing the person lying quietly on the operating bed, his whole body seemed as if it was frozen. He stood rigidly in place, and everything around him seemed to lose its color.
One moment ago, he was still smiling and saying to him, “He is the only spouse I choose.”
The next moment, he was lying on the cold operating table, becoming a cold corpse.
The first time he saw his spiritual guide, he took this man into his heart. Not only because of the spiritual compatibility, but more from the touch of the soul. There were no sweet words and no vows of love, but they naturally drew near to each other. It was then that Yonis realized that he had never told him: “I love you”.
Shang Ke’s gentleness and thoughtfulness made him think he was the only person in the world who deserved to have him and protect him. However, he had let this person get killed before his eyes.
“It’s so dark, is there anyone to save me…”
“Don’t be afraid, I’ve come to save you, I’ll protect you from now on and never let you get hurt in any way again.”
Sorry, he broke his promise…
Yonis eyes were red, and the spiritual power that had been strongly suppressed in his body instantly lost control and furiously swept around.
“Yonis, don’t!” Several anxious voices rang out one after another in an attempt to stop him.
The destructive power of an A-rank Dark Sentinel’s spiritual power was terrifying once it went into a rebellion. Moreover, a large number of sentinels and guides had gathered here, and the slightest carelessness would cause a spiritual chain reaction, forming a huge spiritual storm. At that time, not to mention ordinary people, even high rank sentinels would find it hard to escape.
Yonis tried his best to control it with his remaining shred of sanity, but as soon as he thought that he would never see him again, the grief and despair in his heart was like a tidal wave that overwhelmed him in waves.
The entire hospital was enveloped by the raging spiritual power, and all the sentinels turned on their defenses, struggling to resist this raging spiritual wave.
“Yonis!” The dean and the others kept trying to establish communication with Yonis, but they all failed.
Once the Dark Sentinel with strong self-control lost control, no guide was able to mentally guide him. The only person who was able to calm him had passed away a few minutes ago.
“Yonis… do you want to…”
“Do you want to get your own child killed…”
Child? That word brought a moment of clarity to Yonis’s chaotic sanity.
“Shang Ke is pregnant with your child!”
Yonis’s brain “buzzed”, he almost thought he heard wrong.
At this moment, the dean rushed over and grabbed his arm tightly, saying sternly: “Sober up! The doctor just detected a vital reaction in Shang Ke’s body. It is imperative to ensure the safety of the child and remove him from the mother’s body as soon as possible.”
The chances of a male guide getting pregnant are very low, and the survival rate is not high. The slightest misstep can result in fetal death. Now that the mother’s body is dead, one more second wasted is one more point of danger.
A child? His child? Yonis’s rebelling spiritual energy gradually calmed down, but his body still remained motionless as he stared blankly at Shang Ke on the operating table.
Seeing that Yonis had calmed down, the dean immediately arranged for the doctor to transplant the fetal seed.
In fact, the doctor doesn’t feel hopeful about the result of this transplant, it is difficult for a male guide’s body to nurture life. Once pregnant, the fetal seed must be nurtured for at least three months in the mother’s body. But in the case of the mother’s death, they can only transplant early, the danger of which is self evident.
Yonis seemed oblivious as people came and went around him, with only the figure of that man in his eyes.
An hour passed and the fetus was successfully extracted and transferred to the artificial mother womb, causing everyone to rejoice.
Looking at the faintly shimmering glittering white seed behind the glass cover, a little ripple finally appeared in Yonis’ hollow pupils.
“It’s a miracle!” The doctor said excitedly, “This is the first time I saw a fetal seed with such a vigorous vitality.”
“It’s the mother’s effort. He lasted for nearly seven hours with that kind of injury, buying us precious time to protect the fetal seed.”
“Indeed, the wounded patient’s desire to live was so strong. He pulled through several times despite his heartbeat stopping a few times, but unfortunately…”
Yonis can no longer hear the voice behind him. He only felt everything before his eyes were a blur.
Someone tapped on his shoulder, then he heard the dean’s voice: “This is the child your guide tried his best to leave behind for you, don’t fail his expectations.”
The words “don’t fail” calmed Yonis down.
He thought that he could be a good father.
Because the child was the only thing he was entrusted with.
Five months later, the baby gradually took shape. The doctor told him it was a healthy Sentinel baby, a Dark Sentinel just like him.
Yonis was a little disappointed. He would have preferred the child to be a guide who inherited his mother’s excellent genes.
Seven months later, the child had his first spiritual fluctuation. The powerful pressure caused all the babies in the hospital to cry out in fear. A handful of sentinels were also affected, and their spiritual energy passively counter attacked, flooding towards the young life who was still under gestation.
The artificial mother womb sounded a piercing alarm, and the hospital sent out a large number of people to try to defend the child against the spiritual attack. However, before they could act, the child’s spiritual power changed again, and he actually induced the spiritual power of all the nearby guides to converge on him, forming a huge spiritual shield around him, expelling the sentinels’ spiritual attacks for him and helping him with spiritual assistance.
This is still a strange phenomenon that has never occurred in the history of the country. It is normal for a sentinel’s spiritual power to counterattack when attacked as it is a self-protection ability. But a guide’s spiritual assistance is always controlled by the guides themselves and would definitely not be drawn in by other forces (except for their partners). Now an unborn child has the ability to have all the guides assist him. In other words, he can draw the spiritual power of any of the guides whenever he wants, and he can choose any of them as his partner in the future. As a Dark Sentinel with a very low compatibility with the Guides, this ability is simply unbelievable.
It has been speculated that the child’s genes may have been influenced by his mother’s genes and some sort of mutation has occurred, causing him to be compatible with the spiritual power of all Guides despite being a dark sentinel. This mutation, for the evolution of the Sentinel and Guides’ power, is undoubtedly of extreme importance.
Ten months later, the child was successfully separated from the artificial mother’s womb under the attention of all, breathed his first breath of air on earth, and announced his birth with a high-pitched and powerful cry.
Yonis held the child in his hands and felt his strong vitality. A wonderful feeling of joy, sadness, heartache, and longing arose in his heart…
Keke, our child was born, did you see it?
In order to better raise the child, the Guide Labour Union helped Yonis select an excellent A-class guide to take care of the child’s daily life, and also act as the child’s spiritual mentor.
But Yonis did not want outsiders to butt into his space with Shang Ke, so did not hesitate to refuse the union’s help.
The union originally had no intent to force either. Everything would go by the wishes of the child’s guardian. However, they did not expect things to develop unexpectedly. Soon after Yonis brough the child back, a strange spiritual rebellion occurred. The child’s spiritual power had actually caused Yonis’s spiritual power to counterattack, almost causing a tragedy.
After Yonis lost Shang Ke, his spiritual power became extremely unstable. Although it was usually well controlled, if it gets stimulated by the outside world, it would immediately become active. This time, if not for his extreme efforts to suppress his spiritual powers, the child is likely to be in danger due to the spiritual rebellion.
In view of this situation, the union had no choice but to temporarily cancel Yonis’ guardianship rights, forcing him to separate from the child, allowing him to visit the child only in the company of a guide.
Yonis tried his best to get along with the child, but all ended in failure, and finally had to accept this harsh reality. The child was the only thing left for him, and now he had lost even this.
Standing in the empty villa, Yonis suddenly felt like he had no home to return to.
In order to forget the pain, he began to focus on his work, fighting against the anti-government alliance and all the terrorist forces. From originally visiting the child once every three days, gradually became five, ten, and then every once a month… The longest interval he hadn’t visited was for seven months.
The child grew up slowly in the Guide Labour Union. As he was separated from his father and rarely met him, he became emotionally distant from his father. When they met, they also didn’t talk much, basically spending the time in silence.
Outsiders say that Yonis is a great hero, but in the child’s heart, he is a cold, heartless and completely incompetent father.
His birthday, he never attended; his studies, he never asked; his life, he never cared… The child longed for his father’s attention, but in his father’s heart, it was always thinking only about his duties and tasks.
The child’s resentment toward his father lasted until he turned eighteen. Yonis promised him that he would come back to celebrate his birthday. The child refused outwardly, but in his heart he was looking forward to it.
However, he ultimately didn’t make it.
What the child got was a cold urn.
Yonis was killed in the mission, his body was gone.
The child asked, “Did he leave any message?”
The man who delivered the urn replied, “No, Sir did not have time to leave a message.”
Did he not have time to leave a message, or did he have no message to leave at all?
The child accepted this reality in silence and calmly helped his father conduct the funeral, burying him together with his mother.
A few days later, he went back to the old house to pack his belongings and found a locked room.
Finding the key to open the room, the first thing he saw was a table full of models and toys. If he was not mistaken, these were all the things he had played with as a child. In addition to that, there were several thick photo albums in the drawer, detailing his growth from childhood to adulthood. The last one was a photo album of his father and his mother. His father which was standing beside mother, was very different from the man he remembered. It was as if the him in the photo was the real him, with his eyes full of doting for his lover and his enthusiasm for life.
When the child turned to the last page of the photo album and saw the handwriting on it, the sadness he had suppressed for days finally came out with tears in his eyes.
For our beloved child, who we wish for a lifetime of peace and happiness.
